Is there a law against hacking into someone's facebook account and posting lewd content?

Last month my facebook account was hacked into and deleted. A couple weeks ago it was reactivated and very disgusting lewd content was posted in the about me section I briefly read something about unauthorized database accessing, or something of that sort, being against the law but the actual law in the United States was not mentioned. I was wondering if anyone knew anything about this law.

I'm sure by contacting facebook they will guide you in the right direction. If there isn't a tough law, there ought to be.

Yes it is illegal and if whoever did it is caught they will face legal ramifications. You need to contact facebook and let them know your account has been compromised. Make sure you set a very secure password and that only you know that password. You can go to http://strongpasswordgenerator.com/ to generate a password that no one will be able to easily hack.

It is, indeed against the law, but there isn't a lot police can do, this would require a cyber unit or the FBI to get involved if you wanted to actually catch him..Report it to the police so it's on file, keep your facebook and other passwords secure and just move on. It's doubtful they'll be able to catch him, simply because it will never be a priority unless he does this several times.
